Scam - Stay Away From Them
Posted by Altimase2003 on 02/26/2010
When I order from Wireless, there's one term and condition for early termination fee by the career on the front page that you have to read before you order. After over two month, I decide to switch service provider. So I cancel my service and Paid $175 early termination fee for AT&T. Recently I received another the bill for $200 from SIMPLEXITY told me that I broke their contract and nothing they can do right now. The only thing I have to do now is to pay them $200. What a scam. I ask them if they can show me the term of agreement. They told me to enter the order number in...and there's second argreement. What a SCAM.

The argeement that I argeed with is the $175 early termination fee that I argee before I place my order. Who going to argree to the term that you don't even see before you order. WHAT A SCAM...STAY AWAY.

altimase2003: I work at Simplexity and I am sorry to hear that you feel the way you do about the way the terms and conditions were presented. I can assure you however that if you called in the order, our sales agent would have gone over not only the carrier ETF, but our Equipment Discount Policy and subsequent charges as well. If you ordered your phone online, when you check out, we present both the terms and conditions for the carrier as well as our own terms and conditions that again explain the equipment discount policy and charges for violating that agreement. Whether purchased online or over the phone with a live agent, you must agree to all terms and conditions prior to the order being submitted to our system. You may also find a full copy of our terms and conditions on our website at: http://www.wirefly.com/about/purchaseterms/?referringdomain=wirefly&refcode1=&refcode2=&agent=&eid=&zipcode=20191. I hope that this helps to explain what occurred and again I am sorry that you have had this experience. Please let us know if there is anything else that I can do to be of assistance. Sincerely, Wirefly_Kim

Was the final bill your actual final bill for the two months you had the service?
Posted by altimase2003 on 2010-03-11:
If you have both argreements, they suppose to be on the front page. When people going to order from you guys, they can see your argreements before they submit their order. I already paid the early termination fee for At&T. I will not pay you guys. If you guy charge to my credit card, I will file a claim.
Posted by PepperElf on 2010-03-11:
keep in mind, that legally... filing a claim does not actually stop or delay any bill. you may find that you will still be expected to pay the bill until a court decides in your favor

I get it, you bought ONE service from TWO different companies. Probably a modem rental or lease from Wirefly to be used with AT&T. OP, if you signed contracts with both, you owe both.

i agreed to buy a plan with ATT for two years contract on 450min/month and $39.99/month on the phone with a guy who claimed from wirefly. i was about to move to maryland so i told him that i wanted a 301 area code. when i got my cell phone, it was 808 area code and i called him back asked to change the area code which he did. later, i got a letter from simplexity asking me to pay $300 for cancellation on my plan. i have never cancelled my plan and i only asked to correct my wrong area code. later they told me that because i signed a data plan which i never did with the person whom i talked to. i had called simplixity many times to explain the problem. this is likely a case of fraud that the company let some people to sell their products with false information. now the company denied everything and simply accuse me for breaking the contract and wanted me to pay for something that i never agreed to. the company even send it to collection agency and report credit agency. this is just a way they try to hook people to their products with fraud and misleading information.

I just bought phones from Simplexity through Tiger Direct. They have a very long and complicated user agreement that is different from the one that they present to you when you purchase the phones. This is very bad.
Posted by strlight83 on 2010-07-22:
I've never heard of this company until today when I got a notice in the mail saying I owed them $300 because my wireless service was disconnected and I owe them that for an equipment discount. The thing is my service was never disconnected. A hold was put on my account for maybe 12 hours because my phone was lost and I didn't want anyone to use my phone but the hold was lifted the next day. Needless to say this will NOT get paid!
Posted by altimase2003 on 2010-09-18:
Simplexity or Wirefly are both SCAM. They're trying to strap you in a cheap legal way. First, they get the collect agency want to collect $300 from me. I didn't pay them nothing. After a year...still call me and want me pay 80$ to close out. DO NOT PAY THESE SCAMMER...They'll will get nothing from me.

I was doing some digging since I was considering buying a device from wirefly.com and found that not only do they NOT have a BBB rating, but that the business and those associated with it were revoked from BBB. Much thanks for having this information out there. I am very grateful!

Wire scammed me out of a $250.00 rebate for a verizon Phone and service. They are agents for Verizon, Att, etc and crooked as a snake. This happened in 2009.Wirefly vans all over DC near huge Verizon Center. Verizon said they couldn't help.After blowing my stact to reps at Wirefly and Verizon I contacted the FTC and FCC as well as Attorney Gen. for NC. May as well been complaining to North Korea. Dug like lillypad99. They were revoked by BBB. Went to Complaint sites with FCC and FTC as well as independent sites by googling. Wirefly complaints and "scams" were all over the sites. But, still in business.

Horrific experience
Posted by Oreganoca on 03/02/2011
So, I was eligible for an upgrade on my Verizon account. I looked at Verizon's site for upgrade options, then looked around a bit on other sites and came across Wirefly, which said they could process my upgrade, and the pnone I wanted would be free (versus close to $100 if I did it through Verizon). Got a notification then the next day that Verizon needed to speak to me directly to authorize the upgrade. I called the number given, and spoke to someone in Verizon's order department, who told me I had upgraded my phone that morning! I did not, and told them so. They still would not authorize the upgrade through Wirefly. They transferred me to "customer care". The representative there was quite pleasant to deal with, and did some research. She told me that Wirefly had put the authorization through that morning, and Verizon had OK'd it. Wirefly then tried to process the upgrade a SECOND time, and the eligibiltiy was declined. Verizon's sytem now shows an upgrade date two year out. She told me that I had "activated" a new phone that morning. I said I hadn't, and asked what phone I had activated. She told me that her records showed I had an enV touch, and had upgraded to an enV touch that morning. I asked why I'd upgrade to an out-of-date phone that I'd already had for two years and had nothing but problems with, and that likely was no longer available new anyway. She said to call Wirefly back and tell them that Verizon showed they had already authorized my upgrade and ask them to process my order, and that if they would not process my order still, to call Verizon back, and she would re-set my upgrade indicator so that I could upgrade my phone through either Verizon or someone else. I called Wirefly and talked to a representative that barely spoke English, and the words she did know were difficult to understand due to the heavy accent.

Eventually (after asking her to repeat or rephrase things repeatedly) she said their system did not show the order had ever been authorized by Verizon, only declined as Verizon's system now showed I was not eligible for an upgrade for now another two years. They refused to work with Verizon to straighten the mess out, and cancelled my order and basically told me Verizon would need to fix it. I called Verizon back. Got some other guy who told me (again) I wasn't eligbile to upgrade my phone for antoher two years after I explained what had happened to him. I told him the previous Verizon representative had said to call back if I could not get Wirefly to ship out my phone, and that they would re-set my upgrade counter so I could order from elsewhere. He said there was no way to do that, and I had to talk to Wirefly, and they needed to cancel the authorization their sytem had approved. He claimed that Verizon could not even view where an upgrade authorization had originated (though the woman earlier could tell me that it WAS Wirefly that authorized an upgrade on my account this morning, and what time). I asked how on earth Wirefly's cancelling my order would fix my upgrade eligibility, when their system didn't reflect that they had authorized it to begin with. He claimed, still, that this would somehow work itself out in the next 24 hours. I'll believe it when I see it. Neither company was helpful, with the exception of the second Verizon representative (of three) I spoke to. My problem is still unresolved, and the third Verizon representative told me to call back in 24 hours if it was still showing ineligible for upgrade, BUT that they couldn't do anything about it anyway, Wirefly would need to fix it. And Wirefly claims they never did what Verizon said they did... So. Basically it appears that I'm screwed. IF I ever get this mess straightened out, I will sure as hell never attempt to order anything from Wirefly again.

Crooks and Scam Artists - You Are Warned - Go Elsewhere
Posted by Straitman on 04/09/2010
In December of 2006 I made the mistake of setting my family up with new cell phones through Wirefly. I did a lot of research and Wirefly appeared to have the best deals - AFTER REBATES. After purchasing 3 cellphones (plus Verizon wireless service)from Wirefly I was owed a total of $190 in rebates. With the rebates, I would have received a good deal. Without them I was badly ripped off.

Unfortunately, I discoved too late that Wirefly is nothing more than a front for a massive rebate fraud scheme. I HAVE NEVER RECIEVED ONE PENNY OF THE $190 IN REBATES THAT WIREFLY OWES ME. I don't believe Wirefly ever had any intention of paying the rebates they promised. I completed all the documentation requirements for my rebates (which were onerous and took hours of my time spread over several months), and submitted it. I have a letter from Wirefly acknowledging that they have received all the required documentation and stating that they will send me the rebates. I have called and written Wirefly repeatedly for over 3 years, but have received not one penny.

Wirefly claims that anotHer company was responsible for the rebates, and that that other company has gone bankrupt! I researched the bancrupcy filings of that other company and learned that HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF FOR THEIR WIREFLY REBATES. Wirefly committed to paying these rebates, and can not Dodge the responsibility for paying them. If they can not pay them, then WIREFLY itself should go bankrupt. The fact that this company still operates under the same name and is still scamming people even today only compounds their crime.

I went through a samilar probem with the activition fee. The activition fees add up when you have multiple lines at $35-65 per line. So I thought I was getting a good deal when the fees waived. But I waited and waited, still haven't got a single cent from them!

Buyer Beware!
Posted by Livinnpce on 02/25/2011
Added a new line of service to our existing account on Dec 6, 2010. Once we received the phone it did not work properly. Contacted WIREFLY and made arrangements to exchange phone for another style. After waiting over 3 weeks for the replacement phone, WIREFLY contacted me to say the replacement phone was no longer available. We were forced to go back with the original style of phone. Once we received this phone we began using it HOWEVER after two weeks we continued to have issues with the phone. We finally brought the phone in to our local AT&T store and had them check the phone. We were told by AT&T that the phone was defective. AT&T contacted WIREFLY while we sat in the store and WIREFLY told AT&T they would honor our warranty because we had received the new phone 31 days prior. They would waive the one (1) day overage. I was given the warranty number for WIREFLY and contacted them once I returned home.

Upon contacting WIREFLY, I had to speak with a foreigner who was unble to speak very good English or I learned later, could not understand English either. When you call in with a problem you are asked to give the account holders phone number, name, etc. This I did, THEN I had to give the phone number I was calling about....HERE IS WHERE THE PROBLEM BEGINS.

After a lengthy discussion, WIREFLY finally agreed to replace my DEFECTIVE phone without charging me a $250 deposit normally charged while waiting for their defective phone (I was use to SPRINT that would send me my replacement phone in a box with the return authorization info at no charge).

Upon the receipt of my replacement phone, I noticed Wirefly had the account holders phone number at the top of the paperwork. When I opened the box I found that WIREFLY had replaced the DEFECTIVE phone with a different phone. They sent me a replacement phone for our most recent order on a different line which was the account holder.

After going through the conversation of charging me $250, I immediately contacted WIREFLY to let them know that, although I like the replacement phone they sent me, I wanted to make sure that when I sent back my DEFECTIVE phone, they were not going to charge me since they sent me a different phone.

WELL.......HERE IS WHERE THE NIGHTMARE BEGINS! I should have never called and been honest. When I called to report the situation, the person I spoke to at WIREFLY began telling me that I BETTER SEND THAT PHONE BACK or they were going to charge me $250 and my phone was OUT OF WARRANTY and they WERE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT! I was shocked! I tried to explain everything but was told that....the first time I had to return my phone in December, while the FIRST replacement phone was on BACKORDER...my warranty EXPIRED! I asked him again....YES! MY WARRANTY ON MY BRAND NEW PHONE EXPIRED WHILE WIREFLY HAD MY PHONE ON BACKORDER! This was completely different information from the information given to ATT!

After being on the phone for OVER an hour, our conversation ended with a threat that I return the phone that WIREFLY SENT BY MISTAKE or they would charge my charge card $250+.

Over the weekend when I had time to find websites that allowed customer feedback, I placed the comments you have just read. IT DOESN'T STOP HERE....IT GETS WORSE!

On Tuesday, we received 4 phone calls from THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT...ha ha ha ha....Jonathan Thomas. When I finally had time to return the call, I spoke to a very nice young lady. Obviously she needs to find other employment because she does not fit in with the other contacts I have spoke with at WIREFLY. The nice customer service representative referred to the negative feedback I had left on a particular site and stated that they would like to try to resolve the issue. I explained the situation and she caught on to what had happened rather quickly in comparison to the others.

At the end of the conversation, she stated that she would get approval the next day to send out the replacement phone (the one we had received by mistake because we really liked it and we did not want the other kind because we had already tried two of the same style and both were defective). She said that she would call me back the following day to confirm the shipment.

At this point, I was very impressed that Wirefly really did care about their customers and was going to try to resolve this nightmare. The following day came and I did not receive a phone call. Two days after I had heard from them I decided to contact them myself to see what had happened.

WELL....when I called "the Office of the President" and spoke with Mr. Jonathan Thomas...I was told that the phone promised was no longer available. (The same phone that I had just returned to them 3 days prior and the same phone that two days before was going to be shipped to me was now no longer available.) That was fine, I told them I just needed a phone. The representative began telling me that it was going to cost me $149 and blah, blah! Their final offer was to cut $50 off the price and I could pay $100 to have a phone. I asked them...WHY DID YOU CALL ME BACK? You changed your story once again...just as your company had done the first time. You read my negative feedback and called me to try to resolve an issue and ended up doing the exact same thing I wrote negative comments about.

In Wirefly's defense, they wanted to resolve the problem....they wanted to charge me more money for a new service line that I have been paying for since December but had not been able to use because of WIREFLY'S defective phones or backorders or incorrect shipments.

Needless to say, I do not accept their resolution.

I think the moral of the story here is, don't deal with 3rd party vendors that sell phones that work for someone else. why go to wirefly to buy a Verizon phone? just go to Verizon and buy. you know that its then backed by them and its designed to work on their system. if you really want to save money and buy some thing from a 3rd party vendor, just go ebay. you'll find the phone there too, maybe even less.

Rip off six months later!
Posted by SharonLR on 01/27/2010
My husband and I purchased phones from wirefly.com in July of last year. In December, two days after Christmas, they took 600.00 from our bank account! We tried to contact the company, and they said there was nothing they could do. We had payed our bill in July, in full and were not notified that any more money was owed. No phone calls, no statements from them at all. We contacted our bank, and they said that we could file a dispute, but there was no guarantee we would get our money back. WASTE of TIME. THIS company doesn't even answer your questions when you call. Very bad business!

You didn't notice for 5 months you weren't getting billed? You paid your bill for July, but what about the other months? Wirefly is just a third party place to find cellphones and plans. But, you still have to pay a month by month basis for your phone plan.
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-01-27:
It really is bad that you did not receive monthly billing statements and you deserve to know why. That said, you didn't think the service would be free from August to now, did you?
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-01-27:
Taken from the site, about them charging your bank account...

"When you sign up for wireless carrier service through Wirefly, we discount your phone purchase price by an Equipment Discount amount ranging from $200 to $300. By ordering through Wirefly, you agree to repay this discount if, during the 181 days after your new equipment is activated, if you:

Fail to pay your balance due to your carrier each month.
... and many other things...

If you break any of these contract provisions, except as a result of a documented service quality issue related to the carrier service, you authorize us to charge your credit card in repayment of the Equipment Discount."
Posted by PepperElf on 2010-01-27:
sounds like it was an authorized transaction then
Posted by Anonymous on 2010-01-27:
OP should have been receiving the monthly bills from the cell phone provider she chose through Wirefly, not from Wirefly itself. The OP needs to contact the cell phone provider to find out why the statements weren't sent. Also, the OP should be able to view their bills online via their cell phone provider as well; so, this issue won't continue to happen.

Also, taken directly from Wirefly:

"If you signed a contract for a new account with a wireless service provider and do not wish to keep the service, it is your responsibility to contact the carrier to cancel your account--Wirefly cannot do that for you. You should contact the carrier directly regarding any activation fees, monthly usage costs, taxes, and/or early termination fees that may be owed."

Problems with Mobile Backup Customer Service
Posted by Tiffanymullinsmd on 02/11/2014
RUSTON, VIRGINIA -- I have been trying to contact Wirefly for several months, concerning my Mobile Backup account. Initially, when I tried to log in, I got a message saying that my e-mail or password was invalid. I changed the password and got confirmation that my password had been changed, and logged in immediately afterwards, and it STILL told me my email or password was wrong. Now today, I when I try to change my password, it tells me that a password change request cannot be sent to my e-mail address, and to make sure that my e-mail address is valid. I have contacted the sales department via telephone because it is the only number that seems to work, and was hung up on several times. I finally e-mailed "support@wireflymobilebackup.com" because I am unable to login and access my stored data. I did not get a response. After returning to work from maternity leave, I tried again. I was given the number 877-394-3230 by a representative, which does not work. The numbers for mobile backup listed on their site 1-775-392-2181 and 866-947-0302 do not work. I also tried 888-247-7273 which was listed on the e-mail when I signed up for Mobile Backup, which does not work either. 1-800-444-9543 and 1-866-852-3216 are numbers that I got by reading responses to this site do not work. I attempted to send an e-mail to "onlinesupport@Wirefly.com" and got a message saying this was an invalid e-mail address. I attempted to do the live chat, and no matter when I try, there are "no technicians available". I have just about had it! This is absolutely ridiculous! "Kim from Wirefly" who responds to people on this website, I need you to respond to this email so that I can get access to my stored data ASAP!!!!!.

Good Prices, Poor Service
Posted by Jeff.smith42 on 12/03/2013
LANSING, MICHIGAN -- I have ordered 3 or 4 phones through Wirefly. Each experience has been frustrating and lengthy. While prices are unmatched the customer service for ordering has been ridiculous. Hour long waits, poor and uninformed agents, complex and simple mistakes that make the process difficult.
In summary best prices but make sure you fill out everything correct exactly the first time. Customer service is ridiculously slow and unhelpful

Sold Me a Refurbished Phone
Posted by Luvnlfe on 07/23/2013
RESTON, VIRGINIA -- Think twice before you purchase from this company !I was sold a refurbished phone and when I called they lied to me and said they never sell used devices.

Well, I guess I must just be an idiot for thinking that having pictures and numbers already saved meant it was USED !!! I called and spoke to customer service, which again was a joke, none of them speak English and they made me feel like I was some kind of uneducated moron because they sold me a used phone. Had I known this was going to be such a huge waste of my time I would have spent the extra money and gone somewhere else. To top it all off, what an insult it was when customer service offered me $25 for all the time I spent wasting my time. This company will rob you blind and after robbing you send you a used product !

I really wish I had shopped around more before I used this poor excuse for a cell phone company. BUYERS BEWARE !

A phone that was returned with pictures and numbers on it is not necessarily a refurbished phone. A refurb would most likely have everything erased on it before it was sold.

Wirefly.com is terrible customer service
Posted by Lynnbui on 07/12/2012
RESTON -- Wirefy online is terible customer services all the way up to president office. They don't know what to do and knowing their system. They went thru with me to place an order the galaxy 3s for over 1.5 hrs with the salesman that don't really speaking English and asked me all kind the verication informations and he said everything is approved then asked for my credit card then it was approved with the reference number, but after that he said the system is canceled without stated the reason then he tranferred me to the answer machine to instructed me how to get online to get the answer why the order get cancel; THAT IS SO STUPID!!! I called them back to ask for the manager then the upper management office, but they were all terrible service and don't know the reason why the order was canceled. They just only can tell that the system was canceled the order and can't reinstated it and it takes 180 days to reorder it after I was on the phone with them about 3 hours. THAT IS SO TERRIBLE AND STUPID!!!

Go to another site, and try again. Your card could have been denied, you could have a bad record with wirefly, the clerk could have been a jerk, the system could have failed....no upper management person will handle this issue.
It is unfortunate - not terrible
Someone spent 1.5 hours trying to help you - that is not stupid
Posted by Wirefly_Kim on 2012-07-17:
Hi lynnbui,
I am sorry to hear that you had this experience with us. I would like the chance to review your order and see what happened, what the issue with our sales representative was, and to explain to you why you were told what you were told by our agents. If you would please email me your order information to onlinesupport@wirefly.com, I will be happy to review it and have a customer service manager reach out to discuss this with you. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Posted by Greg on 2012-09-16:
I agree with your assessment of Wirefly. I thought I came across an impressivve company and looked forward to ordering and getting my phone.
Then, I actually proceeded to deal with Wirefly. I asked a question after receiving my phone and was told John Bailey was given my email (never heard from this clown)that was 9 days ago. If he's running this company, it shows the mindset at Wirefly, if he doesn't care, his employees won't either. Why should they?). I followed with another email and was asked to give them an additional 24 hours to respond. I had no problem with waiting and hoped I would get an answer. That was 4 days ago. I advised if they didn't want to respond to my qustioned, I'd return the phone. Of course, they gave me a return authorization. Anwser to my qustion...never happened!! The funny thing is, it was about a $30.00 Verizon gift card I was supossed to receive.
It almost seems like I'm being petty but, the way I see it: No customer service now....no customer service later. I'm going to stay with Verizon. I'll return the phone to Wirefly and purchase from a reputabe company. Wirefly isn't the only game in town. They're amateurs. they figure, they can screw over some customers without any ill effects. Works for me....

I tried to order a new cell phone with wire fly and renew my contract with Verizon, my contract is 450 minutes for 39.99, wire fly kept telling me I had to upgrade to 450 talk &text for 59.99. I didn't want text added as I think it's annoying, just call. Wire fly said I had to talk to Verizon as my contract was no longer available, I contracted Verizon and they said it is, and I am eligible for renewal and can have the 450 min/39.99. I again talk to wire fly and and under new contracts it listed my plan.

Wire fly's sale person insisted I have to upgrade to talk and text plan. I asked for supervisor, and finally after about 5 minutes a lady answers and says same thing. I explained that Verizon still offers the same service contract and that Verizon said I was eligible for a renewal with same plan. Supervisor says she can only do talk and text and that she can modify the contract to 39.99 450 minutes only if done within 15 days and Verizon approves the change!

I explained again Verizon has the plan available and I want to maintain that plan. She again says 450 talk and text and later change it to talk only. I asked why would you change later? Do what I am asking for, call Verizon and confirm plan. She insisted I would get what I wanted, and I told her if I sign up I am giving you my credit card and you charge me for talk/text and how do I know you will honor a verbal agreement? She insisted she would, and I told her there was no way I was giving her my credit card number and authorizing a plan I didn't want. She says sorry you feel that way, I reply sorry you can't give me the plan I want, or trying to get me to go to higher priced plan and hung up. WAY TOO SHADY FOR A BUSINESS TO OPERATE!

You have to be really really careful with Wirefly. They have excellent prices and great deals on cell phones but...Read the Fine PRINT. Here's what they won't tell you. To offer this great price many of their phones are refurbished. The air time packages that they offer are not always compatible with the carrier. Once they have your money you're stuck in the middle fighting between them and the carrier.

I don't want this frustration, here's a better way. Shop Costco and Amazon. They have some amazing deals without the headaches and all of the major carriers & smart phones. Should you have a problem they have first rate customer service to fix it. Wirefly can't compete with this. Don't deal with these shady people.

I am sorry that you have had this experience with us. Unfortunately, as an authorized third party dealer, sometimes Verizon will not allow us to offer rate plans that they still offer to customers themselves. That is what happened when you tried to place your order. Verizon will not allow us to offer your current rate plan for upgrade accounts, as it is not financially worth it to pay us the commission when we activate this plan. I am sorry about that this caused you a problem with your order.

As for the previous commentor who stated we only sell refurbished phones, nothing could be further from the truth. All of our phones are BRAND NEW, directly from the carrier and every device has a full U.S. warranty, and is never refurbished unless explicitly sold as such.

I also wanted to let you know that every plan that we offer is a carrier authorized plan - we cannot offer or activate any phone with a plan that the carrier will not support.

If you want to discuss this further, I would be happy to review the sales call and make sure that the agent(s) you spoke with are coached appropriately. You can reach out to me directly by emailing me at onlinesupport@wirefly.com. I look forward to hearing from you soon, so we can address this for you!

My experience with Wirefly also tells me that they don't sell "refurbished phones". They even did not want me to send back a blackberry that had been fully refunded. The phone has been only used for a few days --like brand new. Basically I got a free phone after fully they fully refunded me. For that reason, I have been searching on Wirefly web to find something to buy -- at least so I can put the money back to Wirefly as my appreciation to their great customer service.
